comment Why can't I remove the empty directory with username www-data?
What does ls -al (instead of ls -l) show you? It is possible that there's still one or more hidden files OR folders inside /home/test (starting with a dot (.)) which need(s) root permissions to be deleted and which might inhibit the recursive deletion of the entire folder.

comment Find what process implements a FUSE filesystem
"Generic answer that works on all systems with FUSE support" has just been proved impossible. :) Because you cannot assume that the driver name shown in /proc/mounts has to be identical to the one you specify to pidof. My NTFS partitions have just (unfortunately) shown the naked truth: the driver shows up as fuseblk in /proc/mounts, whilst you have to use pidof with /sbin/mount.ntfs (i.e. /bin/ntfs-3g) to get the pids you want. This is far from unified, methinks, and too far to even think of parsing /proc/mounts for driver names one might want to feed into pidof.

revised Openbox keybindings not taking effect after --reconfigure or restarting X
Ambiguity fixed! was "...not taking effect after --reconfigure or restart". May easily be misread as --restart (OB option), but in the OP it is revealed that he restarted X Window (e. g. ctrl-alt-backspace)

comment Store 2^500 in a variable in bash
@StardustOne Not really. You can use arbitrary groups of characters with the two parameters, e. g. try echo "havk vf sha" | tr 'fhaskv' 'sunfxi' :) (this is rot13 for the poor man, with the chars deliberately unsorted to not give away the solution too soon :))

comment Store 2^500 in a variable in bash
@jimmij One thing; going the echo way is much more portable (think commercial *nixes). Plus, you must ensure that your /tmp is writable if you use here strings. Think of emergency consoles with / mounted ro - your here string approach will FAIL.

comment bash: -eq vs. == and `bc` output type
Can we agree that the manual is a bit too less clear and verbose on this matter still? ;)

revised bash: -eq vs. == and `bc` output type
this is indeed about test (the functions [[..]] resp. ((..)), so this will be the perfect tag for it)

comment bash: -eq vs. == and `bc` output type
Well, thanks for the explanation, but in fact I didn't "confuse" anything. I simply was unsure, hence I chose to ask. Plus, I wasn't able to determine the bc output type. Whatever, in the bash manual page, there was nothing written explicitly about the == being used for numbers - only for strings.
